    I really want to go to New York City but unfortunately I've only visited the West Coast of the US.

    Will you visit the 9/11 memorial (not sure if that's something tourists do, it might put a downer on the trip... I'd like to go though)?

    It was warm, and tbh LA and Las Vegas weren't that great. The Grand Canyon was stunning though.

    Ooh exciting I am sure you will have a lot of fun. Visit the Empire State Building for me, one of my favourite movies ever is Sleepless in Seattle which had an iconic scene at the top of the Empire State Building, I've always wanted to visit ever since.

    Prob a stupid question and something I could Google but isn't it a looooooooooot more effort to go to the U.S. than just grabbing your passport and hopping on a plane to Germany for example? How long does the whole process take before you can actually fly out?

    Also are you just gonna go to NY and back or are you planning on taking a lil tour

    Omg!!!! :love: have a fantastic time :hugs: I've always wanted to visit (and perform in :daydreaming:) Broadway. Will you go and see any shows?

    The only that puts me off ever going (other than lack of funds, of course ) is the long flight. I hate flying! Are you ok with flying?

    Ooh yeah that's a good shout, thank you! I definitely want to do that, I'll add that to my list which is growing quickly. I've been to quite a lot of memorials such as WW1 and WW2 ones in France and Belgium as well as the Holocaust one in Berlin, I think it's really important to keep learning about them and never forget

    Ooh that sounds amazing, when did you go?

    Yeah the Empire State Building is pretty much top of my list as it's about a 5 minute walk from where we are staying :excited:

    Apart from getting ESTA approval from usembassy.gov for $14 which takes about a week to get, nothing else! I guess if you go for longer like over a month or something you need a visa - it's something I'm going to double check though

    Thank you I haven't looked at shows yet, it depends how much it is, but I would love to see the Lion King! I'll have a look into that, thanks for reminding me :woo:

    I weirdly love flying, so I'm looking forward to that :lol: my partner isn't a massive fan of it but will be okay with it, as it will be worth it :yep:

    Do you not like flying at all, or just not long flights?

    NYC is an awesome city ! I am sure you'll enjoy it !
    My tip would be to walk down the High Line: the view is awesome and it is perfect for a stroll 😊 (Besides it's free) !

    We've wanted to go for ages so have a lot of things listed mentally we'll write them down soon and priortise things to fit in the week we want to do the usual touristy places like the Empire State building, central park, statue of liberty, TV/film tour, shopping etc. But this thread is already giving me some other ideas such as the 9/11 memorial and Broadway, so if you or anyone else have any ideas please let me know

    I hope you enjoy it! I've been there once and it was fantastic! But it is a chaotic, crowded city though (much more so than London) , so make sure you wake up early and avoid the crowds. The subway stations are also very unclean and noisy but it's something that you quickly get used to. Apart from that, it's everything I thought it would be and more.

    If you plan on doing all the touristy things, would definitely recommend getting the New York Pass - it gives you access to a lot of the attractions (empire state building, rockefeller, statue of liberty, and more!) We did a boat trip around the whole of manhattan which was really cool!
